In The Mean Time...
Here, Now – Normally I post our Pulpit of Doom podcasts the Monday following the night we record them, but here is one from last week that I never got a chance to post because of the server issues we were experiencing. This was a total drunkcast with myself and Jaded.
I would love to tell you what the hell we talked about, but these stories sometimes bleed together. It didn’t help that I was slurring through most of it and brought up stories that weren’t even in the top 10 list – including the guy who fist raped some chick’s asshole.
Speaking of the podcasts, we are moving the Pulpit of Doom from Thursday nights at 9:30 Eastern (the night the women said was best for them) to Friday nights 9:30 Eastern (the night the women said was best for them). Go figure. I try to announce these things on the day of the podcast, but to make things even easier you can simply follow us on our BTR page and you will get an email reminder.…Continue Reading
FLORENCE, AZ - A man approaching his release from prison killed his cellmate so that he would not be sent back to Mexico.
According to a Pinal County Sheriff’s Office spokesman, 43-year-old Roberto Fernandez was serving time after being convicted of a sex crime. He’s from Mexico, but committed the crime in the U.S and was serving his time in an Arizona prison.
With his release date coming up, Fernandez decided he liked being in prison and did not want to possibly be sent back to Mexico upon his release. To solve that problem, he decided to do something that would ensure he stayed right where he was. He decided he would commit murder.
The person Fernandez chose to kill was his cellmate, 55-year-old Michael McNaughton, who was serving a six year prison sentence after pleading guilty to a child pornography charge.
But simply killing the man wouldn’t do, figured Fernandez. To ensure he received the stiffest penalty possible, he needed to make sure the murder was brutal enough that he was charged with nothing less than first-degree murder.…Continue Reading
WINTER HAVEN, FL — A woman is facing murder charges after police say she accidentally shot and killed her daughter, thinking it was her boyfriend.
According to police, 52-year-old Adele Bing got into an altercation with her boyfriend on Monday. The boyfriend left the home and went to the hospital to treat injuries he says he received after Adele hit him in the head with a gun.
Police responded after being notified by hospital staff, and were interviewing the boyfriend at the hospital when they received a call about a shooting at Adele’s address. When they arrived at the home, they found Adele’s daughter, 22-year-old Ruby Bing, lying dead on the ground in front of her mother’s home.
Turns out that Ruby picked the absolute worst time to pay her mother a surprise visit her 4-month-old daughter. Adele was inside, but said she was afraid the “banging” and “kicking” she heard at the front door was her boyfriend returning to kill her.
Armed with a baseball bat and a .22 caliber handgun, Adele opened the door.…Continue Reading
Yonkers, NY – A pit bull has been euthanized after it attacked a 5-year-old boy earlier this month inside an apartment in Yonkers, and bit off his penis.
On the morning of Nov 10, the boy was visiting his grandmother, Melissa Pettiford, and asked if he could play a video game. After she refused, the boy wandered into the bedroom of his 13-year-old aunt, who was sleeping in the bed with a 6-year-old pit bull named “Momma”.
When the boy tried crawling in the bed with his aunt, the dog began attacking him. By time the dog was pulled off the boy, the boy had suffered severe bite wounds, lacerations and was missing a penis.
The boy was rushed to the hospital along with his detached penis, which had been placed on ice. He’s been there for the last two weeks and his mother, who is not being named, told reporters that her son was doing fine. No word on whether they were able to re-attach the boy’s penis.
The boy’s grandmother said that the dog has never been aggressive before and that family members have always felt comfortable around the dog.…Continue Reading
Police say 40-year-old Jackie Neal, in full uniform and in a marked car, pulled the victim over and managed to get her handcuffed and behind his patrol car. San Antonio police Chief William McManus said what happened next was “unthinkable.”
McManus has reported that although the on-board cameras in Neal’s vehicle were not working that morning, the GPS system did confirm his vehicle was stopped at the location of the alleged assault for 18 minutes.
“I can’t make any sense of it,” McManus said, “Officers are aware they are being tracked.”
Neal was taken into custody by SAPD Special Victims’ Unit detectives and was arrested on charges of sexual assault.
“I am angry. I am outraged. It’s a punch in the eye to the police department, this kind of conduct,” McManus said. “We won’t tolerate it for a second. And I think the swiftness of the investigation and the arrest is indicative of that.”
During a press conference Saturday, Chief McManus said another woman made similar accusations against Neal a couple of years ago, but then clammed up and refused to cooperate.…Continue Reading
According to police, the 38-year-old woman discovered the video after Whibbey left his phone in a friend’s car. The friend reportedly looked through the pics and videos on the phone and gave it to the woman, suggesting that she have a look-see at Whibbey’s SD card.
In a video apparently dated sometime in October, Whibbey is seen performing an inappropriate act on the sleeping pre-teen. Mom says she doesn’t know if her child is even aware of what happened.
Police said before Whibbey was even questioned, he walked into the room during their interview with the victim’s mother, turned around and put his hands behind his back.
Whibbey was booked into the Oklahoma County Detention Center and charged with performing lewd acts with a child under the age of 16. A bond/bail amount is not yet available.…Continue Reading
SOUTH JORDAN, UT - Police have revealed the two boys found shot to death in a Utah basement earlier this month died in a murder-suicide.
I was going to report on this when it first hit the news, but there weren’t a lot of details available aside from a lot of speculation and rumors. The story first made the news when a Taylor Wheeler, 12, and Dayton Gessell, 15, were discovered dead in the basement of a home on November 15.
Police said three other teens were in the home at the time of the shootings, including two brothers who lived there. One of these teens was upstairs with an adult when the shootings occurred. The other two ran from the home moments after the shootings occurred, and flagged down a passing police officer who lived nearby. Aside from the two dead kids, police would also find three guns in the basement.
That was pretty much it for details until now. Police are saying the autopsies have been completed and that Wheeler died of a single gunshot wound and Gessell died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.…Continue Reading
NORTH ROYALTON, OH – Police have charged two people after a heated argument at a child’s birthday party turned into a brawl that was captured on video.
It happened on Saturday night where a kid was having a birthday party inside an Ohio Jump Yard. According to reports, it started with a disagreement between a couple and others at the party. “I think there was some disagreement about who should be invited, and who should not be invited,” North Royalton Police Detective David Loeding said.
When the couple left, they found their vehicle’s tires had been slashed in the parking lot. Instead of calling police, the couple went back inside the Jump Yard and confronted those they believed responsible for the tire slashing. This confrontation quickly turned into an argument, followed by pushing and shoving, and then the punches.
“Unfortunately, it goes from two to three, to three to five people, who are involved in exchanging fisticuffs, ” Detective Loeding said. Fisticuffs. I think I will start working that word into more articles.…Continue Reading
Hallandale Beach, FL - Kayla Mendoza, 20, tweeted “2 drunk 2 care” before she allegedly driving down the wrong side of the road and causing a deadly car accident that killed two women.
Three hours after Mendoza made that tweet, she drove her vehicle the wrong way down the Sawgrass Expressway at 1:45 a.m. Sunday morning. She ended up plowing into another vehicle head-on, killing best friends, Kaitlyn Ferrante and Marisa Catronio, both 21-years-old.
Catronio was pronounced dead at the scene while Ferrante was taken to the hospital and died two days later. Mendoza was taken to the hospital where she was last listed in fair condition. Police are waiting for a toxicology report before deciding what charges will be filed against her.
“It is unknown at this time if Mendoza was driving under the influence,” said Sgt. Mark Wysocky of the Florida Highway Patrol.
Not helping Mendoza right now are the series of tweets she’s made to her “pothead princess” Twitter account in the days and hour before the fatal collision.…Continue Reading
Tulsa, OK — Mr. Sad Face to the left is 37-year-old Brian Hounslow — he was busted this week after a woman told police, and apparently anyone else that would listen, that she witnessed him wankin’ his willy in the ladies room at Walmart.
It all started at about 8:30 Wednesday morning…..
Customer Beth Davis, 61, claims she headed into the shitter that morning and found Hounslow standing in front of the mirror, shirtless, with his pants around his ankles and his wiener in his hand. At that point, Davis did the only thing she could think to do — point and laugh…just kidding… she ran out of the bathroom and started yelling for help.
“There’s a naked man in the bathroom masturbating,” she reportedly shouted for several minutes.
Her screams for help did nothing. Sooooo, Davis took matters into her own hands. When Hounslow exited the restroom, fully clothed, thank gawd, she whipped out her cell phone and began filming.
In the video, you can hear Davis proclaim, again, and quite enthusiastically at that, that she had seen Hounslow fiddlin’ with himself in the restroom.…Continue Reading
Melcher-Dallas, IA - Before I get started with this bullying article, let me say that I think the word “bullying” is used way too much lately, often used in any situation where someone is mean to another – regardless of any signs of continued harassment or if the perceived victim is 8-years-old or 38. I feel this effectively waters the word down, and is an insult to all of the kids who suffer through true bullying every day of their lives.
Honestly, a lot of times I hear the word “bullying” used and can’t help but imagine Donald Sutherland in Invasion of the Body Snatchers, pointing at someone with his mouth agape, but screaming “Buuuuuuulllllly!!!” in an attempt to direct the anonymous, online horde of professional pitchfork and torch holders to a new target. It’s why I stay away from a lot of bully bandwagon stories that ultimately lead to nothing but online lynch mobs and ridiculous laws being passed to satisfy outraged parents holding voter registration cards.
All that being said, WhoTV reported on 13-year-old Levi Null, a boy in Iowa who has been the target of bullying at Melcher-Dallas High School.…Continue Reading
STPAUL, MN – A teen has been sentenced to 25 years in prison after he raped an elderly woman in revenge for her having him thrown in jail for burglarizing her home.
Curtez Graham was only 16 when he was convicted of burglarizing a 65-year-old woman’s home on two separate occasion in 2011. He was sentenced to Boys Totem Town before being sent to a juvenile correctional facility. While on a 10-day work furlough in June of last year, Graham removed the ankle bracelet monitoring his activities and paid the woman a visit.
He entered the woman’s home for a third time after breaking out a window, and headed to her bedroom on the third floor where she and her male companion were sleeping. They were awakened by Graham as he stood naked in the bedroom brandishing a pair of scissors.
“Bitch, you sent me to prison for 14 months,” he reportedly said before threatening to kill them unless they did what he said. After forcing the man to tie himself up, he raped the woman in front of him.…Continue Reading
Orlando, FL – Police have arrested a 28-year-old man after he allegedly attacked his pregnant sister for eating his chicken nuggets without his permission.
According to reports, Kareem Gordon became furious after he found his 25-year-old sister had eaten his chicken nuggets. After arguing over the nugget faux pas, Gordon followed his sister into her bedroom, yelling “I will punch you down.” He didn’t follow through with that specific threat, but he reportedly grabbed his sister by her neck, pushed her into a nightstand, making her fall to the ground.
Gordon told police he didn’t attack his sister, who is four months pregnant, but was merely trying to have a civil discussion when she slammed the bedroom door in his face. He said she fell after he shoved open the door. Police arrested Gordon anyway, charging him with aggravated battery on a pregnant person. He was booked into the Orange County jail on no bond.
Seems as if Gordon has a history of assaulting women, police saying he has a previous domestic violence incident on record with his wife. …Continue Reading
HAZLE TWP, PA – A man has been arrested after police say he raped a woman and caused her serious internal injuries after he reached into her ass and pulled out a piece of her stomach.
According to reports, 29-year-old Emmanuel Paulino and the victim were about to have consensual sex when he “freaked out” and began choking her. The victim said that Paulino was still choking her when he inserted his closed fist into her anus and pulled something out of her.
The victim said she was screaming throughout the attack, but Paulino did not stop attacking her until one of her minor children, alerted to her screaming, walked into the bedroom. Police were called shortly after 4:30 a.m. and arrived at the apartment to find the victim lying in a fetal position on the floor bleeding profusely from anus.
She was transported to Hazleton General Hospital and flown to Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center where she underwent surgery to repair the damage Paulino had done to her. Doctor’s would find that the “something” Paulino had pulled out of the victim was her own stomach tissue.…Continue Reading
HASTINGS, MN – Beatriz Fernandez, 37, is looking at second degree assault charges after police say she ran her husband’s new girlfriend off the road before cracking the woman’s skull with an aluminum baseball bat.
On November 13, someone called police to report a female assaulting another woman on the side of a rural road. When officers arrived, they found the victim suffering from a fractured skull.
The victim told police she was driving with her boyfriend, who also happens to be Fernandez’s husband, when Fernandez began ramming the rear of her vehicle. The victim said she was eventually forced to pull over and stop.
When both women exited their vehicles, Fernandez hit her husband’s lover “two to three times with a bat with full-out swings” after Fernandez knocked the victim on the ground. Fernandez’s husband, who’d reportedly ran from the car, told police he left his wife about six weeks ago and that she’d recently found out about his new relationship with the victim.
Officers located Fernandez a short time later.…Continue Reading
ORCHARD PARK, NY - The idiot who fell 30-feet from the upper deck at Ralph Wilson Stadium while attempting to slide down a rail, has been fired from his job.
For those of you who missed the story, the Bills were playing the Jets at Ralph Wilson Stadium on Sunday when cameras captured Rob Hopkins attempting to slide down an outer rail in the 300 level. His dumbass ended up falling backwards and landing on an unsuspecting spectator in the stands below.
“He kind of bounced off him and landed about two rows down on the ground,” said one witness sitting close to where Hopkins landed with a loud derp.
Hopkins and the person he landed on didn’t suffer any life-threatening injuries, but both were taken to the hospital to be checked out and later released. The Buffalo Bills reacted immediately, banning Hopkins from future events at Ralph Wilson Stadium – for life.
“The irresponsible behavior that occurred at yesterday’s game by the fan who fell from the upper deck is a violation of our Fan Code of Conduct and cannot, and will not, be tolerated.…Continue Reading
MADISON, WI – An argument between two groups of women at the meat counter of a Woodman’s Food Market turned into a food fight involving pepper spray, yogurt, bacon, and a frozen turkey.
Police say the fight between the women was an ongoing dispute over money that, for some reason, came to a head at the store’s meat counter. Words were exchanged and two women found themselves facing off against four other women.
One of the women in the larger group pulled out some pepper spray and sprayed the other two. This led to one of the women grabbing a frozen turkey and swinging it around before throwing it at another woman. She missed her intended target, but managed to hit a pallet of bacon, which toppled to the floor.
A 62-year-old man inside the store called 911 to report the fight, telling police he was just hit in the head with a full container of strawberry yogurt. Two of the women began punching each other before rolling around on the floor in the spilled yogurt and bacon.…Continue Reading
ROCKLEDGE, FL – Police say a 36-year-old man brutally beat his stepmother before stuffing her into the trunk of his car.
There are no details regarding what prompted the beating, but the 57-year-old woman told police Thomas Youngman beat her head and face, slammed her head on the garage floor, stuffed her in the trunk of his car and informed her he was going to kill her.
She said Youngman began to drive off, but stopped to open the trunk and take away her cell phone. He then pulled her out of the trunk by her hair and began beating her again. Somehow she was able to escape and run to a neighbor’s for help as Youngman fled the scene.
The woman was taken to the hospital and Youngman was arrested later after he returned home. He was charged with attempted first-degree murder, aggravated battery with great bodily harm, kidnapping, and resisting a law enforcement official without violence.
This isn’t the first time Youngman has been accused of assaulting his stepmom.…Continue Reading
TARPON SPRINGS, FL – In my continuing efforts to report on the news that matters, police have arrested 36-year-old Karie Lindgren after they say she stalked a duck before purposely running it over with her car.
Natalie Paraskevopoulos called police after she found a duck squished in her driveway, accompanied by tire tracks across her front yard. ”It was just really, really, upsetting to find it that way,” she said. “I mean, I was choked up. I was in tears by the time the police arrived.”
While on the scene, police were probably wishing a kid would get abducted nearby when another neighbor informed them they’d seen what had happened. They said they watched Lindgren first tried luring the duck with candy. When that tactic failed to work, Lindgren began stalking the duck in her car before finally running it over at a high rate of speed.
Police arrested Lindgren and charged her with felony animal cruelty. She’s currently in jail on $5,000 bond. She didn’t make her first court appearance because detention deputies said she was being uncooperative. …Continue Reading
MONROE, NC — A couple in North Carolina are under arrest after their foster child was found cuffed to their front porch with a dead chicken hanging from around his neck.
A sheriff’s deputy responding to an animal services call stopped by the home of Wanda Sue Larson and Dorian Lee Harper, both 57. Piles of garbage were around the home, along with abandoned and rusted-out vehicles. Chickens, turkeys, geese, two llamas and a horse were also found roaming the property, leaving the area with an overwhelming smell of urine and feces.
On the front porch of the home, the deputy found an 11-year-old boy. He was shivering, cuffed to the porch by his ankle, and had a dead chicken hanging from around his neck. Moments later, Dorian came out of the home with another child, releasing several dogs that began attacking the officer.
The deputy retreated back to his patrol car and called for backup. During this time, Dorian uncuffed the boy and removed the dead chicken from around his neck, placing the dead animal on a barrel.…Continue Reading
